I really love Hitchens when after the adultery question. After he is so logical and reasoned and eloquent it is fantastic to hear the responses "none of your fucking business" and "who gives a shit". Angry Hitch was so fucking awesome.

"So you broke the commandment of adultry right?" "None of your fucking business" "So it seems that on a judgement day you wouldnt measure up to God's 10 commandments" "Who gives a fuck" LMAO

Wow, the DJ is a real turd! that fake articulation in his voice is hilarious...and to think that his inane, emotional hyperbole and presupposition would even ruffle Hitch's feathers is absolutely laughable..water off a ducks back, and dealt with by casually and indifferently delivered intellectual atom bombs.

I laughed so hard at the end; "None of your f**** business", "Who give's a s***". Priceless.  Beautiful, as always.

My favourite slaps from this: ''We're just playing a little game of 'what if''' ''Yes, I'm playing it right along with you....I'm glad you think it's a game by the way! I rather agree with you!'' ''not sure that god is Kim Jong Il..." "Well, Ask Kim Jong Il, he has a different opinion." ''So ownership is a bad thing??'' ''Of people...yes.''

he is talking about the "ten commandments" but doesnt realise they were destroyed. it confuses me that if you believe in this type of religion you should know that another and different 10 were made.

Hitch always made me think and often made me smile. In this case, I was laughing out loud. When he sets up on adultery and how he'd measure up on living by the Ten Commandments? He tore it down right there... Made the buffoon talking to him sound like a proper asshat.

"I am glad you think It's a game by the way, I rather agree with you!" He may have been a drunk and a smoking idiot at times, but this man's eloquence has presence, it's inspiring! Rarely does a big political conflict news story go by without me thinking: "Damm, I wish Hitch was still here to show these muppets their place!" As he did here.

What Christians do not understand about the relationship between god and humans - If gods power is so grand and infinite, and it was so easy for him to create the entire universe. Then there's no reason to thank him. Honestly by the description of god I'd expect those things. I guess it's a matter of being humble. but if you're charitable to another human, and don't expect a thank you, everyone knows that there is something far more admirable, far more respectable, and far more modest about that. Than deliberately asking someone to thank you. And that's why every atheist you ask will tell you. god is a pathetic, petty deity, and he hasn't earned my respect. Of course he'd have to exist.

Didn't the producers of this sunday school game do any research on their guest. Or did they. and think we'll stump him with the "what if" questions. Either way they got what they needed, an education or the wrath of their God for inviting Hitch on to rip Him an new asshole.

"None of your fucking business." He is such a legend. 
Report spam or abuse
The host thought that he could trap Hitch into admitting he was a reprehensible person by using the ancient screed called the 10 commandments by which to 'nail him' (pun intended). A classic use of strawmen to trap the unwary. But Hitch played along, and challenged him all along the way. I think perhaps the most telling point is when Hitch says, contemptuously, " I'm glad you think it's a game". Priceless!

You might like the video, Christopher Hitchen's 10 Commandments. Very humanistic, the world would be a wonderful place if we practiced them.

Excellent premise for a show, start by getting the host to ask absurd questions, then contradict the guest for trying to apply logic and common sense to the argument. Hitchens did have the patients of a fucking saint, with no divine sanction required!

Gotta say, very clever attempt to try and use the framing of a "game" as a license to make straw man arguments and provoke opportunities for quote mining. Too bad for them that Hitchens, like always, couldn't be outsmarted.

What a pathetic little shit that interviewer is. Stupid game and the whole premise is stupid. Such loaded questions. Well done hitch for staying calm and playing the game with this moron. 
Report spam or abuse
There was no "game" or "fantasy" here, the presenter was obviously a religious believer that wanted answers to his paltry understanding of his own silly religion, without having to explain how stupid his questions and ideas about the nature of his hell-creating and infinitely loving god were. Hitchens knew this and absolutely would not let him control the entire thing.

wow, beatdown, straight up, ice cold, fuckin beatdown, I dont know whom this radio host is, but as soon as I heard that whacky ass, fake, pandering radio voice I knew he would be no match for the superior intellect of Hitchens, But the outright condescending tone of which he conducts his poor excuse for a segment truly makes me happy NOT to be on his side of the argument, Hitchens was bombarded by sunday school Christian nonsense questions, and rhertoric under the 5th grade guise of "What if I (the radio host)  do not listen to all the great points you are making, and instead try and convince people that celestial creation for the purpose of slavery, is not only justified and alright, but superimposed as correct because I have a book Ive hardly read, that says it is GREAT amd COMMANDED therefore nothing else matters.!" Hitchens once again, wins every single one of the many childish argments presented to him whole handed and flawlessly, and avoids the OBVIOUS traps for soundbytes put forward by a miserable radio crew, Yes, nice try on that one because thats clearly what they were fishing for, and he didnt give them a damn thing.  I suggest knowing your opponent and knowing when you are overwhelmingly beaten before you even make the phone call next time..

Answers to questions: 1. Yes. 2. If you phrase it that way: "allowed"... then no. Would you call my (real biological) father kind if he said: "Weeelll... I just thought that I'd allow my son to live"? No! You would say that he is a monster! 3. No. 4. He doesn't own me because I say so. This might sound like a cop out but that's what you get if you ask silly 'what if' questions. Rights and ownership are  human made concepts. They are tools (like mathematics). It's like 2+2=4: It's true because we all agree on them. Yes it is a part of that game show. You made an argument and now you want to ignore it when Hitchens asks clarification. How dishonest! 5. Same as Hitchens. Owning another human is a bad thing. Slavery: Leviticus 25:44-46, Exodus 21:2-6, Exodus 21:7-11, Exodus 21:20-21, Ephesians 6:5, Luke 12:47-48 Genocide: I'm a bit lazy so I'll just give you one... Deut 20:16-18 6. According to bible? Horribly! 7. The real 10 commandments (check the bible.. these are the real 10 commandments)? - Thou shalt worship no other god. - Thou shalt make thee no molten gods. - The feast of unleavened bread thou shalt keep. - Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest. - Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end. - Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God. - Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven. - Neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning. - The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. - Thou shalt not seethe a kid [ie, a young goat] in his mother’s milk. I have broken like 2 of these. So not bad at all. 8. Not according to your explanation. 9. I don't know what that means. Why don't you ever ask: "Have you ever put oxygen first in your life?" No, but I still believe in oxygen. What the hell? 10. Sometimes. My parents actually said to me once that they were a bit worried because I was such an easy child to raise. They thought that I was just good at covering my mistakes. 11. Yes. 12. No. 13. Yes. 14. Which god? We haven't identified him/her/it. If it is the god of the bible, we still can't know because of the contradictions. Again the silly questions...

This host is a moron, period. Religion and god are man made fantasies, which are no more significant than a Hollywood movie. Humans gravitate to religion because they’re frightened by their own ineptness, lack intellectual acuteness, and unable to come to terms with their pitiable fear of death. The parties of god, rob its subscribers of self determination, of becoming self-reliant, intellectually resolved, and most importantly, that of becoming advanced human beings—free of religion, its childish superstition and fallacious narrative. “Secularism is the only guarantee of religious freedom.”  Thank you Christopher.
